About me

As a professionally trained counsellor, my aim is to work toward you feeling heard and understood in a non-judgemental way and that you will experience me as real and genuine

Our sessions together will be held in a comfortable and welcoming space where I will maintain your privacy, confidentially and safety

I believe the answers lie within you and I will ensure that you feel safe while opening up to me, developing mutual trust to air your issues

Training, qualifications & experience

Dip. Therapeutic Counselling
Registered MBACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)

Certificate of Proficiency awarded by BACP

I have always been interested in how people live their lives, their likes and dislikes, what they are passionate about, or what brings them pain.  As a result, entering into counselling for me was a natural progression; my own passion, bringing me a sense of service to others and connection

I am passionate about working with clients on developing their self esteem, helping them with tools to reduce anxiety and looking at ways to build meaningful relationships with family and friends and within work environments

I am aware of the pressures on everyone in the workplace today, especially women who are trying to budget their time between working and looking after their families

I work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety and stress as a result of living busy lives and feeling overwhelmed, along with issues relating to problems arising from difficulties communicating, including feeling bullied in the workplace

I have an understanding and have worked with clients on issues that may come up for over 65's, providing a safe space to talk through and explore their personal history

I have also spent many years working in the field of Cancer Care at the Fountain Centre based inside St Luke's, Royal Surrey County Hospital, with patients, their families and staff, along with Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, working with Bereavement and Grief

Having lived as any expat for many years, I can provide a listening ear for clients adapting to ​living and starting afresh in a new country or city; the issues that may arise for individuals and families adjusting to a new environment

I run a private clinic at the Surrey Centre for Natural Health in Chessington and The QE Park Centre in Guildford

Working Together

A 50 Minute Session - I schedule an hour for each client, as I find this helps to allow a few minutes either side to settle in and wrap-up sessions
